Gold Coast Open House gives you the keys to the city

As locals, we don't often stop and take in our surroundings and appreciate just how far this fabulous city has come. So, consider Gold Coast Open House your chance to slow down, enjoy and revel in the evolution of architecture on the Gold Coast by getting a tour of some of the city's most iconic spaces. The event, held on Saturday October 27, will see 39 properties – which are normally closed to the public – opened up for just one day.


The fourth annual Gold Coast Open House will see a program jam-packed with properties that date back to the late 1800s through to the more recent cutting-edge buildings created by some of the country’s leading architects. Step back in time by exploring the heritage-listed Southing Bathing Pavilion, which has stood tall since 1934, and uncover stories from the early 1900s by exploring The Residence and Mr PP’s, as well as Southport Town Hall and Gold Coast Little Theatre.

The well-known Paradise Waters residence built by tourism icon and Sea World founder, the late Keith Williams, will join homes in Tallai, Currumbin Waters and Broadbeach Waters in the program’s collection of private residences that will have their doors swung open for your viewing pleasure. For a taste of contemporary architecture, jump on tours inside some of the city’s most esteemed buildings like The Star Gold Coast, the Abedian School of Architecture and St Hilda’s School. If it’s industrial architecture that intrigues you, this is your chance to check out the Gold Coast Desalination Plant and the Sand Bypass System at The Spit, Main Beach. That’s just the tip of the iceberg – head to Gold Coast Open House for the full program and to book your spot.
